Warning! This is a photo-tour of our trip on June 24th from Atlantic Highlands, through New York City and Hell Gate to Long Island Sound. There are dozens of pictures and few words. Enjoy!
|Early morning fog on the mooring field.|
|Verrazano Narrows Bridge - first of many bridges|
|Junie, misty-eyed, passing the |
Statue of Liberty. She has envisioned this moment for
a long time
|Crazy helicopter pilots flying around the Heli-pad|
|South Street Seaport|
|Manhattan Bridge - this begins the bridge tour|
- and this is the last one I can name confidently
|Empire State Building|
|Not the Empire State Building|
|Current through Hell Gate.|
It can run as high as 4 1/2 knots so timing is essential.
It would be a slow ride bucking the current.
We had a good ride hitting 10 knots SOG
|One last look back at the city|
|Creepy house north of the city.|
Used to be a hospital in the 1800's.
|Turning the corner to Long Island Sound!|
